This is the first in a series of video shorts exploring the wildlife of Western Massachusetts. With the help of my fellow nature nerd friends, we will focus on the natural history, as well as, how to identify their tracks in the forest, fields, and maybe in your own backyard. First up, my good friend and fellow nature nerd Tom Gagnon helps me to explore the incredible Bobcat! Check out my blog posting for pictures.
Featured Video: Butterflies of the Bullitt
There is a little piece of heaven in the hills of Ashfield, Massachusetts. Its the Bullitt Reservation owned and managed by The Trustees. Over the course of the summer, my Nature Nerd friends and I visited the fields of this incredible conservation area to chase butterflies, in order to photograph and videotape their spectacular lives. This is their story. Below are some pictures that are included in the video. Click on them to enlarge.
